You could look at Untangle firewall,  Is does use OpenVPN, but it is an appliance:

OpenVpn is free and open source, it's just the OpenVPN Server with the web interface how is more user friendly witch allow only two connexion for free.

Less secure than open VPN you can make a PPTP connexion on your Windows server or Centos your choice

Or maybe simpler and more secure than PPTP a SSH server ?
